Disc Handbrake for Series 1, 2 & 3.

(Click HERE for fitting instructions)

If you drive off-road, you know how useless the standard Land Rover transmission brake can be. The brake itself is fine, its just that it traps muddy water inside which rapidly grinds down the shoes and bungs up the mechanism.

This Disk Transmission Brake uses a state of the art monster size mechanical caliper designed for agricultural vehicles and earth moving equipment - so use on a Land Rover is a walk in the park for it!

The mechanism is sealed so it will not seize up due to ingress of mud or water and it uses special sintered pads which are resistant to abrasion from mud as well as providing greater friction against the disk than a standard pad.

Replacement pads are readily available from us. We doubt however that you will need any for many years.

The disk has been specially designed for Land Rovers. It is made from tough 10mm thick steel. It has a smaller diameter than a standard drum and does not dangle below the transfer box to help protect it from whatever you are driving over. The caliper mechanism sits in a well protected area at the top, away from most of the mud and water.

It will fit all Land Rover Series vehicles.



Do I need to change the existing cable?

Parts are supplied coated with a tough corrosion resistant coating of gold Zinc Passivate to ensure a long life. The Disk is not coated as the brake pads are most efficient when gripping on plain steel. The light rubbing action of the pads quickly polishes the surface.


Q Does this change the length of the prop shaft?
A Only by the smallest amount - less than half a millimeter.
Q Is the X-Brake lighter than the original drum?
A Yes - it is almost 5kg lighter.
Q If I park my Defender in harsh Wintery conditions for long periods of time will this new disc rust?
A It will rust - but only to the same extent as the disk brakes on your wheels. A small amount of rust is not a problem as it will quickly be polished off by the brake pads.

Could be better
By Goingbush on 12/02/2018

For my requirement the X-Brake is a big improvement , but could be better, All the bolts supplied are annoyingly long , and the cobbled together linkage is not well thought out, wont last 45 years like the original did. I made an original style linkage with clevis at the bottom - much better . However the new brake works a far better, is lighter and most importantly for my EV conversion, has no drag .
